With summer vacation upon us, parents are often looking for exciting and innovative ways to keep their children engaged in education outside the classroom. Summer Camp 2012 at Miami Seaquarium offers students from kindergarten to high school the opportunity to learn about animals, environmental awareness and animal habitats. It runs from June 11-Aug. 17 for campers 5-18 years old.
Summer activities for kids will focus on educational topics according to their grade level. These activities include lessons on the essential role that water plays on all aspects of life; the extraordinary feats of some marine animals; the devastating effects that human activity can have on the health of the planet and more. Campers also will experience at least one animal interaction and show each day. The cost of the camp includes a tee shirt, souvenir photo and a daily snack.
Curriculum for each grade level at Summer Camp 2012 at Miami Seaquarium will revolve on a three-week schedule with additional weeks optional. Camp hours are Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., with early and late care available for an additional charge.
